    I keep making spelling mistakes when I write and it is scaring me. I have to keep checking if it is right and if it is wrong, it annoys me so much. I have a few signs of dyslexia so I guess that has something to do with it but I want to sort it out now. My GCSEs are approaching and I have no way out of this.
    Is there an online spelling test thing that I can do to improve or can someone test me each week. I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
    I make mistakes with words such as establishment- I might say establisment or for research, I would say reserch. I guess I became lazy after using spell check and all the other spelling correctors. I have started to make mistakes so often now. I just feel like crying. Help please...

    Thank you

    Your spelling actually doesn't matter massively for GCSEs. Of course, if there are spelling mistakes everywhere, then it does become a problem, but only for questions were Quality of Written Communication (QWC) is assessed.
